Kate Shaffer Desserted Chocolate Cook Book
$29.95

If you were stranded on an island with 40 other people, and had to choose one thing to keep you sane, what would it be? In the winter of 2004, snow-bound and unemployed on a tiny island seven miles out to sea, Kate Shaffer chose chocolate. Three years later, her now-renowned chocolate shop twinkled into existence.

Named by Food & Wine Magazine as one of the top 25 cookbooks of 2011, and winner of a bronze IPPY award for 2011, Kate's Desserted Cookbook is both recipe compendium, and warm-hearted memoir. Ragged Coast Chocolates co-founder, Kate Shaffer, guides you step-by-step through her recipes for everything from French-style truffles to chocolate-spiked Mexican mole poblano. Interspersed between recipes, are intensely personal accounts of adjusting to life on one of Maine's only un-bridged, sparsely populated year-round island communities.

A perfect gift for the new graduate, the family entrepreneur, or the armchair traveler.
